I finally got to try out a Fender USA Geddy Lee Jazz. It is obviously built well and it sounded nice... but, honestly, I almost hated the neck profile and far prefer the Mexico/Japan neck profile. Playing the USA Geddy reminded me of what I really like in a bass neck--and it wasn't what I was feeling there. I do prefer j-bass 1.5 inch width, BUT even more important for me is the front-to-back thickness. The Geddy USA neck was just too damn deep to be comfortable for my hand. My Tony Franklin P-Bass has a wider neck (1.625), but is super thin from front to back and feels miles and miles better to my hand. I've even felt 1.75 inch necks that felt better to me than the USA Geddy. My Flea Jazz is pretty much perfect in the neck department for me (for long scale basses). It's thin front to back and 1.5 width with a nice contour overall. This post is not meant to be a put-down. We all like different things in a bass neck. I'm just wondering if anyone else had a frown on their face when trying the USA Geddy, thinking... "No, not for me." I definitely prefer the MX/JP version's neck.
